Latest Project

Good Evening!  Hope your weekend was great!  Mine was pretty wonderful.... we went to see Ray Lamontagne and David Gray and it was amazing!  Best show ever!  Other than that we had a pretty low key weekend.  I did start on a room that Mr. Hughes thought was finished... silly Mr. Hughes!

When we moved into this house, I had a great plan to paint our powder room.  I wanted something bold in the small space.  So, I had Mr. Hughes paint cherry blossoms and branches on the walls....

And, while it is exactly how I wanted it, well, the colors I chose, well, the flowers, they looked like they were moving.  Like pulsing or something. (I am not on nor have I ever taken LSD. Seriously.) Mr. Hughes thought so too.  

So, after I got the okay from Mr. Hughes (I had to make sure that I wasn't going to tick him off by painting over it) I set to work on redoing this tiny space.  

I have already started painting (those flowers don't want to go anywhere!) and gathering up some fun stuff to change things up a bit.  This bathroom was fun, but it is time to say goodbye.  I just wanted to share the Before...or is it the 1st After....

So, with that in the works, I haven't done much else, except this....

Mr. Hughes picked up this can type thing somewhere.... I think it is part of a ice cream maker.... anyhow, I liked it... it reminds me of the big painted coffee cans that held our school supplies in kindergarten.  It is perfect for picking up the crayons and some extra trains and stuff on baby hughes' table (a birthday present from Ash and Nana.)

So, it was kind of plain....
I had these cloth books laying about that I had bought to do some sewing projects with and hadn't done anything with as of yet...

And we had some magnet paper.... so I made a giant magnet to make a fun little bucket.

No big whoop. 

Hopefully, I will have a powder room to show you sometime this week or next.... and maybe I will let the Mr. take the photos... it is really hard to get great photos of a tiny space.... and I really don't think I can justify a fish eye lens for one blog post...

Have a great week!
Bye for now!

  10. Hi,
    Just wanted to tell you I'm REALLY jealous! Stuff like what you have is IMPOSSIBLE to find in South Africa, and when you do, it's ridiculously expensive. I love your style and I love your blog. One thing: Babies grow up - too fast sometimes too slow :-)

  11. the can is so cute and I can't wait to see the new bathroom!
